of lebanon. meanwhile, osama bin laden was watching these events unfold and essentially learned the lesson that america was cowardly, that they couldn't take a punch in the nose and that emboldened him to later on launch the attacks that we know he launched. i keep coming back to that because to me it seems like we have to figure out what type of strikes, what targets to strike. but isn't the bottom line here that the president said we have this red line of chemical weapons and if you cross that there will be enormous consequences. if we fail to deliver those enormous consequences, we lose all of our credibility in the reason gone, we lose all of our ability to act as a deterrent. iran is watching this and learning perhaps the same lessons that osama bin laden learned in 1983. >> krystal, the fact is international law was violated. the president's statement of crossing the red line occurred six to eight months ago. syria's used chemical weapons some months ago. in fact, some reports indicate that he's used this some number of times, even 100 times on a much limited scale. the red line bein
/11 generation, we are accomplishing what we set out to do. because of you, osama bin laden is no more. because of you, al qaeda's top ranks have been hammered. the core of al qaeda in afghanistan in pakistan is on the way to defeat. that happened because of you. because of you, more afghans are reclaiming their communities. their markets, their schools, their towns. and they have a chance to forge their own future. because of you, more afghans are trained and stepping up and defending their own country. because of you, and to preserve the gains you fought and bled for, we're going to make sure that afghanistan is never again a source of attacks against our country. that happened because of you. so the war in afghanistan is still going, for you, that means fewer deployments, more training time, preparing for the future, getting back to what marines do better than anybody else on earth, amphibious operations. it means more time here on the homefront with your families, your wives, your husbands, your kids. but of course, the end of the war in afghanistan doesn't mean the end of threats to our na
was a personal visit to osama bin laden. >> i've heard of him once or twice. part of the interest in a book like this, other than it bag great read, is the sort of fear and fascination with terrorism. do you feel like that fear is still as great in the population today as it was, say, ten years ago? >> it seems to be because we're seeing a new kind. they call it the clean skins. these are young men who the counterterrorist forces have never heard of, like the ones who did the boston bombing and the two nigerians who butchered that off-duty soldier in london. these are guys who seem to convert to insane, perhaps, certainly homicidal extremism, where even the drone can't penetrate. they are dangerous because there's no reported of them. they're just not on file. if they're on file, then, yes, usually if there's some big conspiracy involving chemicals and things, then yes, the counterterrorism forces intercept them, get a whisper, someone talks or sneaks. they have agents. when it's just one guy deciding, i am going to go and kill for allah, you can't do anything about it until he strikes. >> when
